This quote from towleroad.com from the mouth of Rep. Ike Skelton is a case in point. He said:
Rep. Ike Skelton (D-MO), the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, says repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" would put families "in a difficult position" because then children would be asking about homosexuality:
Said Skelton: "What do mommies and daddies say to their 7-year-old child?"
My response? They tell the truth: these are two people who love each other.
That was easy.
I also was asked by a military man on the plane from DFW to RDU what I thought about the repeal of DADT, to wit I said, "It's a little late, but better late than never!" He was taken aback. "You know you have been working with gay men and lesbian women, yes?" He didn't know. Out of all the years he had been serving, he did not know. I told him, without question, he had.
It is time to repeal DADT.
